White: Machida vs. Diaz was a bad idea.


Early last week Dana White commented to the media that the UFC had just offered a return bout for Nick Diaz: a bout with Lyoto Machida. This was a bout not on anyone's radar, so it took a lot of people by surprise. However this weekend White commented that the bout won't happen and was just a bad idea:

"Diaz didn't turn it down. There's other things going on with Diaz. There's other things going on with Diaz. That was a bad idea, the Diaz-Machida thing was. I'll throw Joe Silva under the bus again. That was Joe Silva's idea. It was a bad idea."

I am not judging him as a person I am simply suggesting that his behaviour, constant complaining and repeated inability to meet his obligations is irritating to most adults who have to handle their shit, regardless of what their personal circumstances.This is the real world, people are judged on the way they behave and the decisions they make. If he makes his living by performing for an audience then he must expect that audience to have opinions on his performance and behaviour.Sincerely though, if you genuinely live that ethos and treat all people without any form of judgement, not just spout it in defence of your favourite athlete, then I am impressed that you are above the basic judgementalism of the rest of the world. Its a higher path you walk and not an easy one.

Seen that movie over 100 times, I'm willing to bet. Between that, Predator, Die Hard, Best of the Best, and Big Trouble in Little China, my entire childhood is encapsulated.

I used to talk to John often, I filmed a vid of doing a slow mo boxing drill I got from him and he commented on youtube about it etc. Him and his sons are like super ripped.
